While last week's show stopping cameo of Hologram/Ghost Tupac kept the internets abuzz, new jack rapper, ASAP Rocky, tried to one-up that last night and brought out erstwhile No Limit Soldier, Master P, for his Coachella debut. Master P and Rocky launched into "Make 'Em Say Uhh" and "I Miss My Homies," dedicating the latter to Trayvon Martin. Hologram Tupac could not be reached for comment.
Fifteen years after his death, a hologram version of Tupac capped off Coachella's first weekend, joining Snoop Dogg for "2 of Americaz Most Wanted" in a set that included Dr. Dre, Eminem, 50 Cent, and Wiz Khalifa. Though Tupac "was the least dynamic of the parade of rappers young and old who held the mike," according to the Los Angeles Times, his appearance begs the question: Who's next?
For anyone who liked Britpop in the early '90s and/or owns the Great Expectations soundtrack even though the movie was tepid, at best: It's a safe assumption that you probably like Pulp. The band has been riding the reunion circuit like nobody's business and closed out the first day of Coachella last night/early this morning. Youtube has made Pulp's entire performance available (as well as most of the event), thus forever preserving an image of Jarvis Cocker strutting his stuff in the California desert.
